Jabra Panacast 50 Video Bar System

The full 180° field of view from the Jabra Panacast 50 Video Bar System (VBS) makes sure that the entire room is utilised. That’s precicely why it resonates so well with us. It means it can be deployed in smaller rooms, as well as large ones and no one in the physical meeting space is lost off camera.

The other great feature of this VBS is its built-in content camera, which means you can present on whiteboards. Like this the remote audience can see through your physical presence, meaning they can see what’s being whiteboarded. It also means you don’t need to purchase a separate content camera.
